i did sociology at a level so wanted to go and delve further into it at a university level and i definitely do not regret my decision and sociology is so broad and interesting that there’s a guarantee you will never be bored in a lecture or seminar or even doing the readings and independent learning. it’s amazing because you can interpret it the way YOU want to whilst also considering other peoples perspectives as well. would definitely recommend taking this course if you want something that’s interesting and makes you think! read more
